Running a Skills Workshop with Deloitte volunteers
As part of our three year partnership with Deloitte Internal Clients Services in London which ended in 2019, we coordinated workshops to support carers back into employment. One session, led by a team of HR specialists, offered carers from across London a day-long workshop focussing on employability skills.
Carers learnt CV and application skills, how to navigate the job market and interview tips, and had the opportunity to practice their interview skills and have their CV reviewed by a Deloitte HR specialist.
